Re: “LP Field's New Concessions Disappoint Some Health Food Fans; Greer Stadium Food Gets Praise From PETA

Did they also substitute peanut-free lyrics in "Take Me Out To The Ballgame?"

Bottom line. These food options suck. I'm not asking for a gourmet meal but maybe just real food perhaps something with a local flare. No hot chicken, no bar b que. Really. Hot dogs and nachos with fluorescent cheese are not real food. Arrowmark b.s. kick out the corporation and let the local market decide what t wants.

Re: “The Weekly Open Thread: What's Your Culinary Secret Weapon?

@David Henley, if you're referring to Kong Yen sushi vinegar, it's not just vinegar, sugar and salt. It also contains "seasoning," whatever that may be. The link to the Kong Yen website that Jack included describes the product as "just the right touch of salt, sugar, plus the flavor enhancement."

That "flavor enhancement" is probably why so many people prefer it to other sushi vinegars. I'm guessing it's an ingredient that contains glutamate, the ultimate flavor enhancer.

Re: “The Weekly Open Thread: What's Your Culinary Secret Weapon?

I don't know if they're still making it, but I have a bottle of Red Boat's bourbon barrel aged fish sauce they call Blis, and it's outrageous! Fair disclosure, I have a burger recipe on their website, so I'm an avowed superfan: http://redboatfishsauce.com/fish_sauce_rec…

Argh, I completely forgot to mention that along with sensitivities to the non-meat-consuming population, Greer has also hosted "peanut-free" nights. This season's peanut-free night was last week. Not only do they sell exclusively peanut-free concessions, but the staff washed the entire park clean to remove peanut residue which, for some people, can be deadly.

Re: “The Weekly Open Thread: What's Your Culinary Secret Weapon?

@David Henley,Pogo, and others- Cho A Dong, right next to Kien Giang on Charlotte, carries Red Boat. $8.99 for a 500 ml bottle. On a related note, if anyone knows where I can find Pantai norasingh sweet plum sauce in the large bottles (32.5 oz/730 ml) I'd be forever grateful. I bought a bottle at K&S on Nolensville once and haven't seen it there since. I've checked the K&S on Charlotte, Cho A Dong, and Interasian, but haven't seen it at any of those places either, though they have the smaller bottles.

The gluten-free folks are always likely to be up in arms, as even a single molecule of gluten will straight up kill them, so the only solution is for everyone to go gluten free just in case.

Re: “The Weekly Open Thread: What's Your Culinary Secret Weapon?

Well, that explains why I couldn't find any there on Saturday. Had to content myself with replenishing my oyster sauce and sweet chili sauce supplies (and grabbing some of that lovely roast pork)!

Re: “LP Field's New Concessions Disappoint Some Health Food Fans; Greer Stadium Food Gets Praise From PETA

@Vegan Paula Dean - I really don't know and it looks from the comments that the grumbles were more from the non-vegetarian contingent, though one would assume that the turkey and chicken items would appease them. Perhaps it's the gluten-free folks who were the most disappointed. Personally, I'm not at all unhappy with a slice of cheese pizza, nachos, pretzels, and popcorn. I don't go to a sportsball game for a gourmet meal; it's all about the fun (and what you can eat with one hand), isn't it? The extent of my purchases at LP Field have only included pretzels and hot chocolate.

Re: “The Weekly Open Thread: What's Your Culinary Secret Weapon?

Also, Friday I went to InterAsian and bought a bottle of this at $1.99. It's good with a neutral oil but it's just rice wine vinegar with a little sugar added (4g per 4Tbls). So if you want to try it you can do that as well.

Re: “The Weekly Open Thread: What's Your Culinary Secret Weapon?

@How's It Taste? Where do you find Red Boat in Nashville? I saw it once at Produce Place and now I can't find it anywhere?

That's no rumor. It's already confirmed.

Just curious Lesley, what percentage of LP Stadium attendees for any random football game would you estimate are vegetarians?

Rumor has it that the former Copper Kettle downtown will also become a Jim n Nicks.

Re: “Rolf and Daughters Slapped with Wage and Hour Suit

Lot of "dislikes" for people stating the facts about wage and hour laws.

A restaurant may be said to be a labor of love for the chef/proprietor, especially early on, and believing that what you're working on is worthwhile keeps you going. But that's no excuse for expecting unpaid work. R&D may well be blameless (the comment about young employees showing up early out of enthusiasm seems plausible to me), but that's a separate issue from the general principle that a worker should always be paid IN FULL for his or her labor, an idea which has the force of law. Like it or not.

Re: “The Weekly Open Thread: What's Your Culinary Secret Weapon?

Fish sauce here too, but more often, lemon juice. When I can't figure out what a dish needs, I start with lemon juice.

Like others, fish sauce for savory dishes and occasionally truffle oil.

Re: “The Weekly Open Thread: What's Your Culinary Secret Weapon?

Guess I'm not alone. Fish sauce.

Even my peanut butter sandwiches feature the stuff. A little lime juice, sriracha, fish sauce and a tiny bit of honey. Stir that until the p.b. emulsifies the liquids and spread on toasted Ezekiel bread. If I have cilantro in the fridge, I'll add a handful and close it up.

Re: “Rolf and Daughters Slapped with Wage and Hour Suit

even unpaid internships are under scrutiny, it's not about 'paying your dues' or having a line of people willing to take your spot if you balk - it's just about the law. Tennessee is still part of the union and subject to the FLSA, which states you get paid for working or you're not working. If you can't clock in until they tell you to, they can't also tell you to work before you clocked in.

SO - remembering that being employed and actually working is not just about getting paid for that time, what happens if the prepper, who was told they can't clock in yet but he needs to hurry up because someone is waiting for what he's doing, cuts his finger off while doing that unclocked prep? Is it just 'too bad, so sad, here's some ice and call us when you can come back' or is it a work injury? If he's not on the clock, the restaurant has a sweet way of saying, hey, we can't control what they do on their own time. That's why the law is the law. If you can't clock in, don't pick up their knife !
